Night out for uke-band

29 May 2012

Night out for uke-band Image

‘Docklands News’ Facebook competition winner Lawrence Molloy is taking his ukulele band out at Platform 28.

But he says they will not be bringing their instruments because they are so bad.

“I wouldn’t inflict us on the rest of the world,” he said.  “We’re terrible.”

Mr Molloy last month won a $500 food and beverage voucher from Platform 28.

“Wow,” he said. “That’s a lot of steaks.  How am I going to spend it?”

Platform 28 manager Gale Watchorne told Lawrence it would be easy to spend $500 on himself and his band.

“Get a couple of $80 bottles of wine, some big steaks, desserts, some King Island cheeses … we’ll have it spent for you in no time,” she said.

“I’ll show up hungry then,” Mr Molloy said. “I owe the boys in the band, so this will be a great way to buy them off.”

Mr Molloy is a long-time fan of Docklands News on Facebook.  While not a Docklands resident, he has taken an interest in it.

“I used to be Port Commissioner in Seattle, so I have a connection,” he said.

Platform 28 is at 82 Village St, Docklands.  For bookings, call 9670 9933.
